So let's get to the gorgeous challenge inspiration!...

Scatty Jan - For my card today I have used the fantastic Pretty Tuff CD- this is brilliant if you get stuck for boy's cards, I use it tons. The bench, boy (David) and frog were all from the CD and so was the monkey paper that I used in the background and also paper pierced Davids shirt with it. The rest of David was coloured using Graphic Markers , David is also available as a digi on his own xx

Shell-I had a happy accident making this card, I was resizing the paper to print in my editing software then I added the image and it was a png file so it meant I could lay it over the patterned paper and still colour it with my markers..So i left it as it was, and just matted it with some brown cardstock, added some flowers and lace from my stash..I will be doing this again that's for sure. The image and papers are from the Cherry Blossom Lane CD

Bev here with Sally the snail, she's from All Around and Everywhere and can be found in the 'Get in Shape' section she was pretty easy to cut out and assemble too. I just added the backing sheet, glitter and sentiment.

Katie Happy Friday everyone. I love animals and yes they are magic. The wall hanging I made was with Cherry Blossom Lane Wedding sesson is coming and I thought that this would make a lovely cute keepsake for any happy couple.  Have fun and looking forward to seeing your makes on the blog. Keeeeeeeeep Crafting Katie DT xx

Anjie - I changed my mind quite a few times before I settled on using the Cherry blossom Lane CD Rom Collection as there are so many gorgeous animals on so many PD CD's. The image, papers, sentiment and trees are all from the CD. The die cut cupcake and tree are from Tattered Lace. I have coloured the image with my Graph'It Markers and given it a light spray with Graph'It fluid to give it a bit of texture.

Susan - This week I have done a very quick card from the fabulous CD Paper Boutique, its full of templates ,papers,3D projects and lots more. I have printed out the papers needed and cut them out, then decoupaged them - how simple is that? the two by two was a cutting file I made myself.

Lou - I have also used Paper Boutique 3 as my starting point and also a Dobadoo stencil (brick wall). I have gone for the adorable Hippo (Hippo Baffday) and also embossed all the bubble elements using 2 different dots folders for added dimension. Finally I added some Dobadoo buttoms and dewdrops for added bubble effect. 

Fantastic inspiration from the team, as ever! 
We can't wait to see what you all have for us with this challenge, so
